5 Easy Tips for Living Eco-Friendly with Kids
Happy Earth Day today!🌎 It’s a special day and you as a conscious parent might have planned on attending sustainability events with your kids or observing earth hour by turning off the lights for an hour. But then, should we dedicate only a single day to our precious earth?
Instead why not make every day earth day?!
We believe that even small actions can make a big difference for our precious planet. By living an eco-friendly lifestyle with our kiddos, they learn to care for the planet. So, we’ve come up with 5 easy tips for living eco-friendly that you can start with your little ones!✨✨
1. Turn it Off!
It’s not uncommon for our family members to forget to turn off their electronics completely, right? But leaving electronics on standby uses unnecessary energy, so let's encourage our kids to turn them off at the wall when they're finished using them.
2. Food for thought
One of the most impactful lifestyle changes could be to teach our little ones a valuable lesson about food waste. Encourage them to take only as much as they can finish so we can avoid contributing to landfills.You can also do your part by meal planning and using up leftovers creatively.
3. Make an Earth Care Carry Pack
Let's face it - we use way too much plastic in our daily lives! From grocery bags to straws to water bottles, it's everywhere. The problem is, plastic can take hundreds of years to decompose, which means it just sits in landfills or even worse, ends up in our oceans.
Make it a point to leave the house with a cloth bag, a reusable bottle and cutleries and straw so that you can avoid using single use plastic . It may seem small, but these habits formed in early years last a and count more than they seem!
4. Get Moving
Going car-less is a great way to help the planet! Cars that run on fossil fuels are friendly neither to your pocket nor to the planet.
If you can, try walking, biking, or taking public transport instead of always driving. Getting the kids involved can make it even more exciting! Take a stroll to the park, bike to the library or take the bus to explore a new part of the city. It will give you a lot of time to bond and make sure your are fit! 🚲🚲
5. Eco-friendly Fashion Choice
